Virtual Antiquity: See Qumran Come to Life

Announced on Monday by the Architect and Chief Designer, Dr. Robert Cargill, of UCLA’s Qumran Visualization Project: new photos, free for download, have become available at Virtual Qumran—The images, one of which is pictured to the left, are fantastic. While much debate has stemmed over the site of Qumran, its inhabitants, and its stages of history, the images are important to scholars and students of the Dead Sea Scrolls alike. The website, images, and eventual video tour are an important testament to the manner in which technological advancements can be utilized to explore and research antiquity. The site also offers short HD videos of key areas at Qumran.
